Nanette Lepore

 At Nanette Lepore, the makeup focused on the punchy violet and pink lips. The rest of the face was kept fresh and clean.

Milly by Michelle Smith

At the Milly by Michelle Smith show, makeup artists gave the models even, matte skin and defined the eyes with a touch of with mascara and liner. The inner eye was highlighted with white shadow, and the lips were painted with a neon matte lipstick.

Michael Kors

The models at Michael Kors were dusted with deep bronzer across their forehead, cheeks and nose. Any imperfections were concealed and a golden highlight was applied to the upper cheekbone.

Jeremy Scott

The look at Jeremy Scott was described as “Daisy Duke Goes to Paradise City.” Val Garland and her team lined the model’s upper eyelids with thick black, winged liner. On the lower lash line artists left space between the liner and the model’s lashes, for a wide-eyed, doll look. Peach blush was generously applied to the cheeks and fake freckled were dotted on. Pale pink lipstick completed the look.

Douglas Hannant

The look at Douglas Hannant yesterday was gorgeous! The makeup consisted of flawless skin, sculpted brows, defined lashes and coral lips. So pretty.

Anna Sui

In love with this look Pat McGrath created for Anna Sui. The rose cheekbones blend up to the temples and onto the eyelid. Lashes were coated with lots of mascara and the inner rim of the eye was lined with white. To top it off, McGrath created a vibrant red, glossy lip using Covergirl’s Tempt and Hot Lip Perfection Lipcolor ontop of Anna Sui’s lipstick in #461.

The Blonds


Key makeup artist, Kabuki, describes his look as “sex kitten, futuristic, Raquel Welch and Ursula Andress in one: it’s sexy and sharp.” To get the look, he brought the eyeliner out and winged it upward, and then pulled it back in slightly through the crease. On the lower eyelid, a swipe of black liner was applied with space in between the lashes and the line. The skin was contoured and a mango gloss was applied to the lips.

Ralph Lauren


The look at Ralph Lauren is so fresh and wearable. Makeup artists, applied white shadow to the model’s eyelids and coated the upper lash with mascara. To get the perfectly flushed cheeks, a mix of peach and rose blush was applied to the apples and blended upwards.

Philosophy Di Alberta Ferretti


Lucia Pieroni and her team used MAC’s Holographic Orange and Fluer Power blush to create the peachy blush that was applied from the model’s outer eye, onto the temples and blended out onto the cheekbones. Highlight was applied down the nose and onto the cheeks to give the skin a little glow.

Badgley Mischka


The makeup at Badgley Mischka is so gorgeous. Pale skin, an elongated cat eye and a drawn on beauty mark. I’m also  obsessed with the coral lip color he gave the models (MAC Flamingo lipstick).
